I don't like to answer a question with a question, but if doing a unit test I would think you should only expect one exception. Is it possible your test needs to be split up one per exception such that you can confirm under the expected conditions (or unexpected if you will as these are exceptions) that the exception occurs?
I agree. Here's the link:
